Cornet wins in Gstaad to end title famine

Gstaad, Switzerland: Alize Cornet won her first title in two and a half years on Sunday as she defeated Mandy Minella 6-4, 7-6 (8/6) in the final of the WTA Gstaad event.

The French top seed, who said she took encouragement from her country's World Cup triumph a week ago, needed two hours to get past a determined opponent who is only just returning to the Tour after giving birth.

Cornet owns six titles after winning her previous one in January, 2016 at Hobart.

Minella from Luxembourg was playing her first WTA final at age 32.
